We are frequently told that drinking adequate water is one of the most crucial factors in sustaining good health. Water offers a lot of health advantages outside just keeping you well hydrated. It may increase metabolism, give you energy, enhance skin, lessen bloating, and much more. It might also be a useful tool for people who are attempting to reduce weight.
Nevertheless, even if we are aware about all of this, occasionally drinking water might feel like a hassle, particularly if you are not actually thirsty. Sometimes all you need to do is a little taste to spice things up.
Here we explore 4 additions to add to your water and boost your weight loss
Cucumber is a light, crisp fruit—yes, it’s a fruit—that also happens to be excellent for losing weight.
Cucumber is low in nutrients and abundant in water. Additionally, it can function as a cleanser and assist in relieving fluid retention.
A cucumber has 38.3 grams of water in it. It has a low energy content due to its high water content, which makes it a satisfying snack with few calories and a low energy density.
Adding lemon to your water bottle can liven up the taste as well as energize your body with the anti-oxidants and Vitamin C. According to research in the Nutrition & Metabolism (London) Journal
, women’s vitamin C deficiencies were associated with indicators of obesity and adiposity, or being dangerously or morbidly overweight.
Mint, an aromatic herb and garnish also has several proven health benefits. Mint has anti-inflammatory capabilities, helps relieve heartburn, and can also reduce appetite. One of the 39 plants listed in Traditional Arabic Palestinian herbal medicine (TAPHM)
as being used to help people lose weight is mint.
4. Apple & Berries
Even though apples and berries taste great on their own, they also work well when combined with water. They are low in calories and high in fibre, two characteristics that support weight loss.
Of course, you could simply choose apple-infused water or berry-infused water, but the combination of fruits provides a particularly wonderful flavour that will keep you drinking all the water you require—and perhaps even more.
